Welcome to the E. E. Waddell Language Academy 

 Waddell Language Academy (formerly Smith Academy of International Languages) is a K-8 language immersion magnet located in Charlotte, North Carolina. We offer language immersion in Chinese, German, French, and Japanese for grades K through 8. We also offer Beginning Spanish in middle school. To discover more about language immersion and Waddell Language Academy, please explore our website or contact us.

Parents of Prospective Students: We welcome your inquiries, and we love to talk about our school. Unfortunately​, we are unable to accommodate impromptu visits. If you would like to talk to someone about the school, please call or email to schedule an appointment. Also, we do not give tours to individuals. Our group tours (also called open houses) are scheduled from November to February. To find out more about enrollment in CMS and magnet schools, please visit  Student Placement  (Opens in new window)
